Coriant, a global supplier of SDN-enabled end-to-end transport networking solutions, has announced the completion of successful field trial testing that resulted in “industry-leading” achievements in optical transmission capacity, speed, and spectral efficiency using “state-of-the-art” flexi-rate optical modulation technologies.
As demand for high-bandwidth cloud applications such as video and cloud computing continue to grow over time, service providers will require DCI solutions capable of seamlessly scaling to higher speeds without sacrificing resiliency or power efficiency.
Powered by Coriant CloudWave Optics, the 400G 64QAM and 128QAM field trial demonstrated “ultra-fast” transmission over a typical span of metro Data Center Interconnect (DCI) applications.
Coriant CloudWave Optics is a key photonic layer technology that combines a “leading” signal processing engine, optimized integrated photonics, and embedded software intelligence that would bring a new level of optical performance, efficiency, and scalability to infrastructure networks facing high traffic growth.
“The ability to maximize utilization of fiber optic resources at ever-increasing transmission speeds offers new opportunities for OpEx and CapEx efficiencies as service providers scale their infrastructure networks,” said Uwe Fischer, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Coriant. “We continue to advance these capabilities with innovations in our Coriant CloudWave Optics solution, which underpins our leadership in reach, speed, power efficiency, and resiliency – even under the most challenging fiber conditions.”
This field trial was conducted in cooperation with the Celtic-Plus SASER (Safe and Secure European Routing) project and the IDEALIST (Industry-Driven Elastic and Adaptive Lambda Infrastructure for Service and Transport Networks) project, among others.
Coriant at OFC 2016
Coriant showcases its comprehensive portfolio of SDN-enabled packet optical transport solutions this week at OFC 2016, one of the largest global conferences and expositions for optical communications, which takes place from March 22-24, 2016 at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, California.
Highlights at the Coriant Exhibit Booth (#1321) include demonstrations of the company’s latest innovations, including the Coriant Groove G30 DCI Platform, Coriant CloudWave Optics, and the Coriant Pluggable Optical Layer, as well as end-to-end management and control capabilities enabled by the Coriant Transcend SDN Solution and Coriant Transport Network Management System (TNMS).
